apple_pathways: Whatever floats your boat! (Default)
Had a lovely day today: I spent it thrift store shopping for my Halloween costume. At the salvation army in Redford, I found a wedding dress that would be ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for dressing as a Calvierri girl from Doctor Who. It was of a thick, satiny ivory fabric with a swirling french pattern, long sleeves, and a very full gathered skirt with long train. There were a few too many sequins on the bodice, but overall, they were tasteful and would have blended in perfectly. The best thing: it FIT me! Perfectly! The one problem? It was $70.00. I'm sure that's a very good deal for a wedding gown, but it's a little pricey for a Halloween costume.

What I ended up buying instead is a long black and white formal gown, the kind one might wear to prom or to be a bridesmaid. It was only $15.00, and just a little bit too big; it only needs a few tucks in the bodice, and it should fit perfectly. My plan is to be some sort of Zombie Miss America. Stay tuned for pictures.

Now here comes the dilemma:

Remember this post, where I promised to write a drabble for the first ten people who commented? Well, I am as good as my word, and they're done! (Incidentally, only three people commented, so if anyone else should want a drabble, feel free to make a request. I won't set the internet police on you if you don't post the meme on your journal in return.)

There's some fanfic "rule" out there that drabbles should be 100 words long. "Phooey!" I say. "I don't play by the rules!" So without further ado:
